ABC Supply Acquires John S. Wilson Lumber in Maryland

Roofing and building product distributor ABC Supply's newly acquired location will offer roofing, siding, decking, and related products.

Chicago-based roofing and building product distributor ABC Supply acquired the assets of John S. Wilson Lumber Company in West Friendship, Maryland.

The John S. Wilson Lumber Company location ABC acquired will operate as an ABC Supply location offering roofing, siding, decking, windows and related trim products.

“We are excited that these talented associates are now part of the ABC Supply team, and we look forward to helping contractors in this growing market achieve even greater success,” said Tom Kuchan, ABC Supply’s Northeast Region Vice President in a news release.

Family-owned and -operated since 1881, John S. Wilson Lumber Company has provided specialty building materials to area builders and contractors for 142 years. Most recently, brothers Hugh, Jim and Craig O’Donnell served as owners of the business.

ABC Supply is ranked No. 2 on MDM’s 2023 Top Building Materials/Construction Distributors List.

Earlier this year, the company grew its Canadian presence when it acquired Cedar Grove Roofing Supply.
